The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are not only one of the most consistent and successful teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL). They are also known to be immensely popular with their fans and followers. The defending champions will kick off their 2022 campaign on March 26 against the Kolkata Knight Riders in a rematch of last year’s title clash and as they began their training in Surat in Gujarat on Monday, March 7, fans queued up on the streets to catch a glimpse of the yellow brigade led by skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

In a video which the franchise shared from the training, Dhoni was seen walking into the Lalbhai Cricket Stadium in Surat which the team has selected in order to get familiar with playing conditions in neighbouring Maharashtra where this year’s IPL will be staged. Fans gathered around the CSK’s team bus as the players headed to the practice session from the hotel. One fan was even seen with the Super Kings’ jersey on the streets.

“Those eyes that smile with love give us the joy, everywhere we go!” CSK wrote while sharing the video of fans cheering the team in Surat.

The Super Kings, who have won the title four times since 2010, are among the first few teams to begin training for the 10-team IPL this year.

Besides Dhoni who will turn 41 this year, the likes of Ambati Rayudu, KM Asif were seen training at the venue in Surat in the presence of bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji who accompanied the players during the training. They were seen in pictures shared by the franchise.
Rajvardhan Hangargekar, who recently starred in India’s Under-19 World Cup campaign in the West Indies and bought by the CSK for Rs 2 crore, also joined the camp in Surat.
